valle dei cani

Winter morning

The vast and beautiful valley that faces the Rome Conservation Zoo in Villa Borghese is appropriately nicknamed 'Dog Heaven,' and it is an area exclusively entitled for dog play, where Fido can run free off the leash and socialize with fellow canines. Brave dog-less park-goers venture here too, but at their own risk: the grass is very well fertilized...

  1. Oh, I just love your winter morning pictures. They are wonderful! : ) What a great blog post!

  2. Wow, there is no snow? that's amazingly so beautiful although i know it'd be cold out there.

  3. Nice that there's a park for the dogs! Looks like the weather is warming up a bit.

  4. You are very strong artist-photographer (and I am serious about that!).
    And the warm sun in Roma of your photo takes my breath away.

  5. The sun is shining! Yay!!

    Life w/ K~ Thank you, I'm blushing!
    AFV~ I couldn't believe the gorgeous day. We deserve it after 2 weeks of rain!
    Rambling Round~ There's also a beach for dogs in a popular coastal resort 30km north of Rome! It was glorious today.
    Irina~ Thank you so much, your kindness and amazing words take away mine.

    Ciao a tutti!

  6. Looks like the sun was shining so nice! Good place for dogs to run.

  7. Dog parks are great, especially in cities where there is a leash law. I can understand the care one must exercise while exercising here ... we have a litter law which is mostly abided by. However, we also have a large population of Canada geese ... I'm sure you can read between those lines. LOL!!

  8. Chef C~ it's excellent!
    ChuckP~ Canada geese? uh oh... :)

  9. Ohhh great shots shots! But the best part of your shots is to see (+feel) that Mr Sun is shining:) Sad that very cold weather is upon us now, crazy rainy:( Happy for you, happy weekend wishes.

  10. Well fertilized is a wonderful euphemism.

  11. I remember the place well.
    I used to live in Via Gaetano Donizetto, only a few blocks from Villa Borghese and often walked across the park to work.
    Those were the days, I can't believe I left.

  12. Nihal~ That was a single day's blessing, we're back to horribly cold temps, grey skies and light drizzles.. :(
    Unknown Mami~ It's a minefield out there...
    Merisi~ You lived very close to my house! Why DID you leave??? Torna presto...
